It’s that time of year again when we have a lot of child-heavy time to fill, and are not quite sure how to do it!  To help, we’ve rounded up our favourite Summer Holiday Camps in and around the area for ages 3 through to late teens – ranging from multi-sports, music and performing arts to swimming, craft and coding.

Camp details are correct at time of going to press, but please check with the individual organisations before booking.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that some camps offer sibling discounts and weekly / daily booking options or even a QPM’s discount.

If you don’t spot your camp and would like to be included, please let us know at
